April & May Recap Post

Between traveling most of the month, and recovering from traveling, I didn't get April's recap post up. So now I'm looking back at all these photos and I can't believe that April was SO long ago. Ack! It's June, and we've had really summer-like days lately. So crazy! APRIL! 1. I started off the...

Life Is Different Now

Life Is Different Now

N was less than 24 hours old, and we were alone in our room at the hospital. H had gone home to check on the pets, and after a night of constant checks, the room was finally peaceful. I reached over to grab my camera, and I snapped a few dozen photos of her. Brand new. It's hard to describe how I...

February Recap Post

Oh, February. I can't tell you how many times I looked up plane tickets to warm places like Hawaii or Palm Springs. Luckily for H, they were all too expensive.

October & November Recap Post

One of my goals for 2016 was to be more diligent in posting these recap posts, because I felt like each month was just flying past in a blur. I'm sure it's only going to get crazier when baby Wenzel arrives this month! We packed a lot of stuff into October and November. Once I ended my wedding...

September Recap Post

It's the first week of October, which means I'm due for a September recap. I've been struggling today, after waking up this morning from one of those crazy pregnancy dreams (ooooh boy), and not being able to get back to sleep. I'm thankful that I don't have a wedding tomorrow, and I might just...

Daniel’s Tattoo Shoot

My friend Daniel was in town for a hot second (aka: not nearly long enough for us to catch up) earlier this year, and he asked me if I'd snap a few photos of his tattoo. Uh, yeah! Dan's tattoo, which reads "make your own luck", is hand drawn by the talented Mara over at Neither Snow. Her...
